Donate your items

Whether you have a special collection of rare and unique treasures, a stash of everyday objects from the past, or just a pile of unwanted clothes, there are lots of ways in which your can support Bridge Cottage, Nutley Windmill and UDPS by donating your things to us.

Do you have any old and interesting items gathering dust or tucked away in boxes at home? Don’t want to throw them away but would like them to go to a good home? Consider donating them to our handling collection. Handling collection objects are used for educational purposes and in reminiscence boxes for people suffering with dementia.

If you have any particularly special items, such as old photographs, letters or other items of historic or local interest, then these can be donated to our main collection here at Bridge Cottage for use in displays and exhibitions. Contact for more information on donating your items for any purpose.

If you have clothes, books and toys that you no longer need then you can always donate them to our charity shop in the High Street. Email Liz on
